Air Itam Sister Curry Mee ; Penang Hawker Food

Let’s go to a unique place for a bowl of curry mee. How unique is it? You have to bend down when you order your bowl of curry mee. Why do I say so? Read more to find out…

See the picture below. That’s how the stall owner prepare the curry mee. She’s sitting on a small bench and all the utensils are also located on top of small benches. As you can see, the soup is cook with charcoal.

The curry mee looks very white when the chili is not mix with the soup. There are some well marinated squid on top of the noodle. You can always ask for a special order to add extra squid or extra tofu or extra bihun. Just get your custom made bowl of curry mee here.

When I was having my bowl of curry mee there, I heard one customer order for less bihun with extra squid and chili. And I saw the bowl of curry mee… a generous portion of squid and the chili. I saw sweat were dripping from the man’s head when he consume that bowl of curry mee. But he seems like enjoyed it very much.

This stall is operated by 2 sisters and already been in operation for 60 years. I thought the 24 hours wan tan mee has the longest operation period history of 50 years, who knows… there’s always another higher mountain somewhere…

    I noticed the chili paste is a bit different from other curry mee. It looks more towards the Hokkien Mee chili paste.
    I’ve changed the link to this new site.

    Nice, clear and sharp photos.. really good. I hope one day I will get to try the sisters’ curry mee one day.. because they seem really old and look like may stop selling anytime..

    Allie: I wanted to make this blog a successful one but still a long way to go ler… :(

    Yeap. They looks really old to me, and it’s kinda heart ache to see them selling the curry mee. Not sure if they need it to support they life or they just sell it to have something to occupy their leisure time.?


  6. Actually what makes you decide to change??
    I wanted to, but just has no gutts… :(

    Allie: There are more flexibility in wordpress which are not available in blogspot. I am in learning stage still :-p
